    I'm running an east cape lostmen with a 2010 suzuki 60. I'm now on my second customized 3 blade and haven't found a setup that works well.

    I considered switching to a 4 blade but was told by a local prop shop that the LU on the 60 couldn't handle a 4 blade with my setup - anybody know if this is accurate?

    I'm looking for good hole shot and would be happy with a 4500 rpm cruise in the mid 20 mph range. Any suggestions on 3 or 4 blade prop setups that people have been happy with are greatly appreciated.

    Jack Foreman prop. Got a heavy cup 3 blade on the same engine BT Mosquito. Runs exactly as you described above. I hear he also make the same prop in what he calls a "light cup" version.

    There’s no such thing as a motor that can’t handle a 4 blade. It’s the pitch, diameter and cup that makes a prop make more resistance which calls for more power fron the motor. You could run a 6 blade with that motor, it would just need less pitch, cup, diameter or a combination of the three. IMO you need a new prop guy if he’s telling you nonsense like that.
